Abstract:

This document addresses the idea that Ravens task was primarily one of data collection several observations regarding the data are in order 1 Virtually all lower-level people felt that they had little or no input into the timeline setting process 2 Of all the SGL Form 50s examined, none had estimates in excess of 1000 manhours 3 The computational error rate on the Form 50s is remarkable 4 A frequent complaint heard at SGL was that the person doing the work did not have access due to transfers, resignations, etc. to the person completing the Form 50 5 Although PMS and REMARCS regularly collect manpower data, SGL currently has no program for collecting manpower data which can be traced back to SCRs and 6 While PMS is an extremely powerful management tool, its slow turnaround time severely limits its usefulness. It is recommended that the Decision Support System, currently under development by AIRMICS, incorporate a schedulingresource allocation program such as PMS which will allow managers to schedule and plan in an interactive environment.
